Theoretical Chemistry Group
The goal of our research group centers on understanding the basic principle of the variety of chemical phenomena by the latest theoretical means. A major theme is understanding ultrafast dynamics and relaxation processes of molecules in liquid, solid, and biological environments, where a large diversity of long lived states is involved, necessitating the use of a statistical and quantum characterizations of molecular dynamics. Our group develops path integrals, quantum Fokker-Planck equation, and stochastic Liouville equation approaches for calculating dynamical processes, and explores the ways they can be probed using linear and nonlinear optical measurements. The members are from the broad area of physics and chemistry, involving statistical physics, quantum theory, and quantum chemistry.
